-mail as anything that we should all be shocked or superconcerned about it. i mean, every one of us can produce an e-mail from a white house, it doesn't matter of which party, that is far more ominous than what woodward got. >> what do you think? >> i think the bigger picture is -- the woodward thing is fun to talk about for a couple of days but we're on the verge of the perfectly dysfunctional political equilibrium with the sequester that may perpetuate itself indefinitely. this is happening now, the budget stuff at the end of march where the government may run out of funding, you've got the debt limit again coming back in may or june. so, this is going to stretch on for months in this kind of dysfunction that's insane. >> and, of course, we've been talking about the pope. we have ten seconds until we get to the next show. >> i hope the papal conclave doesn't last that long but with senator kerry meeting with the syrian opposition in rome, all roads lead to rome today. >> we're watching it. watching it. >>> "cnn newsroom" with carol costello begins right now. >>> happening now in the "newsroom," sa
. he should be calling us from somewhere, camp david you wherever, and discuss the cuts. >> reporter: one thing we have been seeing the blame game, trying to make the american public feel like one party is more responsible for all the bad things that are going to happen if these cut goes through, like these long airport lines and no more fun for food safety inspections, that sort of thing. there's a new poll out by pew and "usa today" that suggests the white house may have the upper hand here winning this argument it is the gop to blame. 31% of those polled said they would blame president obama if these forced spending cuts go through. 49% would blame republicans in congress and only about 11% would blame both sides, frederica. >> and we have heard a bit about what agencies would be hit, such as transportation, even defense. are there any departments or agencies that might be exempt from these cuts potentially? >> reporter: sure there are some exempt. military personnel, the va, veterans affairs, also exempt. the other big area exempt is entitlements like medicare and medicaid and so
for joining us. i'm fredricka whitfield. the top stories we're following for you right now, the vatican is sapphiring back against media reports on sex, money and gay priests calling them unverified or completely false would if italian publications claim pope benedict decided to resign the same day he received an explosive report on a gay lobby lurking in the vatican. cnn's senior international correspondent ben wedeman is in rome. >> they are blasting in uncharacteristically strong terms, fredricka, are these reports, reports that appeared in a daily newspaper, "la repubblica" and a week live magazine panorama which suggests that indeed this group of three cardinals who were assigned by pope benedict to look into wrongdoing in the vatican found or allegedly uncovered, according to these publications a network of gay priests within the vatican who were being blackmailed according to these reports by a network of male prostitutes in rome. now, the vatican is roundly denying that these reports taking place, accusing the italian media of trying to influence the conclave, that group of 116
of washington's host. for the rest of us, the white house is pointing out how spending cuts in almost every federal program and department are going to affect each state. let's go to a couple of them. for instance, north dakota, it stands to lose funding for ten of its public schools. and 200 kids will be cut from head start. 2,000 civilian defense employees will face furlough. in ohio, that state stands to lose 350 teachers and cut 2,500 preschoolers from head start. 26,000 defense furloughs are expected there as well. to california now. 320 schools are going to lose funding. 64,000 defense furloughs. almost 16,000 fewer children will be vaccinated in that state. pretty tough to see those numbers. in fact, i want to bring in my cnn colleague, wolf blitzer in washington and ali velshi here in new york as well. ali, let me start with you. the numbers seem to be staggering when you look at them state by state. overall when you hear $85 million to hit on friday, people across the country might say, that's a good start. but it's not -- it doesn't stop there. there's a lot more to it than that.

that case says social media has spurred a new class of crime. >> the use of social media to recruit young girls into the sex trade is definitely on the rise. preinternet, if they sent a letter to a young girl saying, you're cute, we think you should come work for us, it strikes me as impossible that that approach would have ever worked. so a crime like this, i think, simply couldn't have happened 15 or 20 years ago. >> reporter: one common move, having a woman reach out. >> i used to have to sit next to my ex-pimp and help him recruit girls. >> reporter: but those same pages used to recruit are also used to rescue. >> i can go and see who all liked this, and that can lead me to looking for girls who look like they need help. >> reporter: law enforcement sources say facebook reacts swiftly when notified of elicit activity on specific contacts. facebook says it takes human trafficking very seriously and built complex systems to flag and block such material. tag.com says it has numerous tech and educational tools to empower and protect users, and has a dedicated team to respond to unau
